Happy Fourth of July
Read Psalm 66.
You think this patriot is proud that his country won a soccer game? You know soccer fans!
Whatever. This psalmist is thankful for what God has done for his nation. We need to be likewise. If ever a country needed to give thanks to God, it's the USA.
God is concerned with not only every individual but for every country in this world. "Let all the earth cry out God with joy." Note that while the psalmist is thinking of his own nation, he also calls upon all nations to praise God. Remember God had saved the Israelites during the Exodus.
But we have much to be thankful for, also. Rejoice in the fact that we are also part of God's covenant.
